Luckhardt Brothers

Luckhardt Brothers. Hans (1890–1954) and Wassili (1889–1972) worked mostly in Berlin where they were born, and were associated with Bruno Taut in the 1920s and 1930s. After the 1914–18 war they shared their theoretical, Expressionist ideas with others through the Gläserne Kette (Glass Chain) circle, and from 1921 to 1954 practised as architects. They designed one of the first Modern Movement housing estates at Dahlem-Berlin (1924), rapidly evolving an architecture of rectangular blocks with bands of horizontal windows that were such a feature of the International Modern style. Their houses at Schorlemerallee, Berlin (1925–8), and three houses in Am Rupenhorn (1928) were constructed with steel frames and large areas of glazing. Some of their ideas were publicized in Zur neuen Wohnform (Towards New Design for Living—1930). Their Berlin Pavilion at the Constructa exhibition, Hanover (1951), was built of steel and glass in the manner of Mies van der Rohe. After the death of Hans, his brother continued in practice, building the Bavarian Social Welfare Administration Centre, Munich (1957), the Plant Physiology and Veterinary Medicine Institute, Free University of Berlin (1962–70), and the Deputies' Assembly Hall, Bremen (1962–9).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
